The 2015-2016 Network TV Upfronts are upon us. Along with news of renewals, cancellations and schedules, the major networks have released trailers for their upcoming Fall shows. We'll be adding all of the trailers as they're released, along with some information on each new series...

NBC
Heartbreaker
Air Day/Time: Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. ET
Type: hour-long medical drama
From: Jill Gordon
Starring: Melissa George, Dave Annable, Don Hany, Shelley Conn, D.L. Hughley, Jamie Kennedy, Maya Erskine, J. Louis Mills and Joshua Leonard.

What It's About: NBC's new medical drama is based on the life and work of Dr. Kathy Magliato. It centers on Melissa George's Dr. Alex Panttiere, a heart-transplant surgeon who does things her own way. She's also got a "racy personal life" that's almost like its own job.

Looks Like: A solid medical drama about a doctor who cares a lot and gets it done. And who doesn't love Melissa George? (#Alias4ever)

The Player
Air Day/Time: Thursday at 10:00 p.m.
Type: hour-long thriller/drama
From: John Rogers
Starring: Wesley Snipes, Philip Winchester, Charity Wakefield and Damon Gupton

What It's About: In The Player, a former military operative turned security expert is lured into a high stakes game where rich people bet on how well he can stop "the biggest crimes imaginable."

Looks like: USA and TNT had a thriller-TV baby that could kick like Wesley Snipes and grab our attention like The Blacklist. We'll see.

People Are Talking
Air Day/Time: Friday at 8:30 p.m. ET
Type: half-hour comedy
From:DJ Nash
Starring: Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tone Bell and Bresha Webb.

What It's About: A comedy centered on two married couples who live near one another and obsess over everything. The trailer teases some amusing antics involving the babysitter, who might also be a porn star.

What it looks like: One of NBC's few half-hour comedies, relegated to Friday night already. Worth noting that Meaghan Rath's name is left off the cast list. The Being Human star had two comedies in the works this pilot season and as luck (or Rath's talent) would have it, both got picked up. Deadline says the Fox one (The Guide to Surviving Life) was in first position, so her role in NBC's People Are Talking will be recast.
Blindspot
Air Day/Time: Monday at 10:00 p.m.
Type: hour-long mystery/thriller
From: Martin Gero
Starring: Sullivan Stapleton, Jaimie Alexander, Audrey Esparza, Rob Brown, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Ukweli Roach and Ashley Johnson.

What It's About: A beautiful tattoo-covered Jane Doe is dropped off in the middle to Times Square with no memory of her own identity or what she's doing there. With the involvement of the FBI, it's discovered that her tattoos are clues to crimes that need to be solved.

Looks like: An intriguing mystery with the potential to offer TV a strong kickass female lead. (Worth noting: Greg Berlanti's involvement as executive producer.)

Heroes Reborn
(NBC hasn't release a new trailer for Heroes Reborn. The above video is a previously released teaser. Air Day/Time: Thursday at 8:00 p.m.
Type: hour-long drama
From: Tim Kring
Starring: Jack Coleman, Zachary Levi, Masi Oka, Judith Shekoni, Robbie Kay, Henry Zebrowski, Kiki Sukezane, Ryan Guzman, Danika Yarosh, Toru Uchikado, Eve Harlow and Gatlin Green.

What It's About: Following up on the previous series, Heroes Reborn will center on a new crop of heroes adjusting to having extraordinary abilities. And with new heroes, comes new villains looking to harness their powers. Some original Heroes characters will appear.

Looks Like: Remember when Heroes was all everyone wanted to talk about? And then when it wasn't? We're eying this one skeptically for now, but it's hard not to be curious about the direction this new drama will take.
